Creative Data Literacy
Data collection, storage, and the skills to work with data are not evenly distributed. Through creative pedagogy, open source tools, and free libraries of activities, our work seeks to build capacity for civic actors to collect, analyze and communicate with data. This includes journalists, librarians, government staff, nonprofit and community-based organizations, artists, educators, and policymakers.
